So - £50 to Debbie because we love / owe her despite the fact that the grant, overall, seems a bit thin. Though, we hope it helps with her costs. And £50 + support for Ladyfest.

We generally dislike requests for money for flyers and its not the same but it is similar.

We like Billy, it's a good proposal and we know he's not going to waste the money. And when i say we like Billy, I'm not using this as an excuse as to why we should just give him the grant, but I'm saying many people know him, he's volunteered at the Forest, we like his music, we want to support him and we know how passionate he is about his music and I think a badge maker would be a really good investment for him.

I'm sure this won't be a popular suggestion, but postpone this till the next meeting, or have a FWG very soon (which maybe we could do with anywhere) and discuss it there?
